I also noticed, since I started this with all four cats, that they pee a lot more than they used to, which also reduces the chance for them to "hold it" for whatever reason. Although they still have the biggest pee in the world when they wake up from their afternoon nap - sleep is too sacred to be disrupted
Maybe that would help your cat to produce more urine, so he will have to go even when you are not home?
Also, does he have only one box, or two? If you have only one for him, adding a second one might be a good idea as well
Tiger has been peeing more than ever because he is on canned food, and yes I do add water and sometimes clam juice, it is saltry and makes him drink more, I also use filtered water. He is also on homeopathic pills (so far it is a trial of 30 days) to make him pee more, he also has a fountain and yes moving water attracts cats way more than still water
,peeing at this juncture isn't the issue, I do pick up at least 3-4 chunks of pee and this is very good considering I leave at 8:00 and come back around 6:00.
He is also taking cosequin which helps maintain the urinary tract healthy, and is also good for his bones. He has been doing great on this supplement, so much that he is much more playful, he is like a kitty all over again.
My thing was that he has been so affectionate ever since he got blocked and I wanted to share it with you all hehe.
I thank you for your advice, I am glad to hear your cat is doing well
Ps: I am thinking of adding a second box, I keep the one I have upstairs to he gets exercise
